You Gotta Have Faith!

Do you remember that song? The one by George Michael that was so popular in the late '90's? I soooo loved that song...and well, I still do! But, my faith has changed & grown on so many different levels, and it is so important to me & a big part of who I am. So, for this week's Pile It On! DT Challenge, Love Plaid, I decided to whip up this simple but lovely little card featuring a hint of plaid. I haven't made a simple, Cricut based card in so long & I really miss it. In fact, it has been a little while since I have given my Cricut some attention because I have been so into my stamping. However, I am making an oath to bestow more love upon the little guy starting now!! We used to be besties & are going to be again...besides, I need to break out those new carts I got for Christmas! LOL!
